@ancient.aura.jewelry spent 12yrs(a slave) working at the post office in Harlem NY. Making a guaranteed 70k a year with full benefits & even had 1 of the easiest routes at his station. Yet, he wasn’t satisfied.
He says “The post office is one of the hardest jobs in America. It’s a miracle how the mail & packages get delivered every day. You got to deal with management, customers, & bad weather. No way, I’m retiring with good mental health.
One good thing about working in Harlem NY is that you’re sounded by culture and knowledge. After work I would go to the classes, lectures,& debates. Even during work after I finish my route I would hang out on 125st & listen to the Gods drop jewels across from@the Apollo Theater. I knew I was destined to be here but being a mailman wasn’t my destiny it was only a stepping stone to my destiny.
It seemed like all the teachers I looked up to knew everything, yet were struggling financially. I always wanted to help lift my people up, but I wasn’t down to be no poor righteous teacher(no offense to the Gods & Earths). Shit, I liked being fly. I used to swag the shit out my uniform. So, I just took my love for fashion & combined it with my passion for ancient culture and came up w/ Ancient Aura Jewelry. I thought why can’t I drop jewels & sell jewels at the same time.
Shit wasn’t easy & I already had 2 failed businesses under my belt. But, 2yrs later I was making more money in my business than I was at my job.
For a while I was doing both. I thought I was caking💸. I went from living check to check, to forgetting it was payday. But, I was tired & had not time for my family or myself. So something had to give. I made my decision after my father passed. He just retired a year ago from working 37yrs at a city job. And, here I am 12 yrs into a City Job. So, it made it very clear of my genetic destiny if I continued down the path of a pay-checker. “Work-Retire-Graveyard”, I didn’t want that to be my story. So I said peace ✌🏾to the post office & gave up my health benefits, pension, & guaranteed check to enter the jungle of entrepreneurship. Now, my business is making 5X’s my annual post office salary. @Ancient.Aura.Jewelry
